The Time's Mark Halperin is reporting the following on the Page blog:A Liberal Lion(ess) of Her Own Defying the Nattering Nabobs of Negativism, Clinton scores the endorsement of symbolically and substantively potent superdelegate/California Representative Maxine Waters. http://thepage.time.com/2008/01/29/a-liberal-lion-of-her-own/
Before the Waters' announcement, I speculated that today's major endorsement would be Al Gore and provided my reasoning:
1.) Gore is the last major get right?
2.) Isn't Gore based on the West Coast? Current TV and his other projects?
3.) I know a lot of bloggers were surprised about how far reaching Clinton's environmental policies were, when she announced them. She also attended a few environmental forums that Obama didn't a few months ago. Could a Gore endorsement have been the reason why?
4.) What would the impact of Gore joining HRC in Florida asking for FL delegates to be counted in the Democratic primary? Can you imagine the impact on an emotional level that media event would bring? Perhaps that's why HRC has made counting FL votes such a key point in the last week or so?
So who do you think HRC's major endorsement will be later on today?
